This one always annoys the hell out of me sometimes windows just refuses to let me remove the esata HDD. Usually I have explorer.exe locking it. I use the Unlocker program the free it up. But even then I can't remove it. Unlocker shows nothing. Now for the umpteenth time googled the issue. And found the Handle program from sysinternals. I could view the handles on the drive but couldn't close them because I got an error that the handle is invalid. What can I do?
Currently these are the handles:
System pid: 4 type: File 18EC: L:\$Extend\$RmMetadata\$TxfLog\$TxfLogContainer00000000000000000002 System pid: 4 type: File 1A64: L:\$Extend\$RmMetadata\$Txf System pid: 4 type: File 1F80: L:\$Extend\$RmMetadata\$TxfLog\$TxfLogContainer00000000000000000001 System pid: 4 type: File 1FF8: L:\$Extend\$RmMetadata\$TxfLog\$TxfLog.blf
The System process is locking the drive...
